El Paso Zoo Seeking Volunteers

The El Paso Zoo is seeking enthusiastic volunteers who will be an integral part in helping keep the Zoo operable year-round.

“It’s been an incredible experience here at the Zoo,” said current zoo volunteer Tom Marsden. “When I retired, I enjoyed my time off, but I still wanted to contribute somewhere. I started volunteering with the Zoo, and I’ve had so much fun. I’ve had the opportunity to provide tours, help with education presentations, and help Zoo staff with event projects. I love it.”

The volunteer program is open to people ages 18 and older who are available year-round. Dedicated volunteers, including retired and senior volunteers, who have a flexible schedule, can work throughout the week, have year-round availability, and can volunteer a minimum of eight hours a month are needed.

The zoo continually seeks enthusiastic, friendly, dependable individuals that care about animals and environmental conservation.

The Zoo is open 362 days a year, closed only on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

For more information on how to volunteer, call the El Paso Zoological Society Volunteer Department at (915) 212-0244. A volunteer application is also available online.
